Two years ago, Peyton Manning announced the Denver Broncos’ 2021 schedule in a funny video that presented him as an “intern” with the team.
Last year, Manning returned to make a second intern video, this time with new quarterback Russell Wilson joining in on the fun.
In a video posted on their Twitter page last week, the Broncos teased this year’s upcoming schedule release video with Manning featured once again. Only this time, the former quarterback is acting like he doesn’t want to participate.
“A trilogy, really? A trilogy? I mean, it’s lazy is my first reaction,” Manning says. “I mean look, they couldn’t even get Macaulay Culkin to do it Home Alone 3, all right? Try one of the other Peytons!”
That last line seems to be a very clear hint that new coach Sean Payton could be featured in the schedule release video this year. Denver general manager George Paton might also be a candidate — or all three: Peyton, Payton and Paton.
The NFL is expected to announce the 2023 schedule on Thursday, May 11. Here is a reminder of who the Broncos will face this season.

Because the league has an unbalanced 17-game schedule, the AFC and NFC rotate between having nine home games. This year is the AFC’s turn so the Broncos will have one more game at home than on the road this season.
Broncos Wire will have full coverage of the team’s 2023 schedule when it is announced later this week.
